ALTA 41: Translation, Sexuality and Power

updated: 
Friday, May 25, 2018 - 9:36am
Lubna Abdul-Hadi, Binghamton University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 30, 2018

This panel is organized around the notion of how sexuality could be reimagined through translation. More closely, it tries to look at the transformative potential of translation and language in deconstructing and constructing bodies and sexuality, in particular how the engagement of translating past sexualities could shape our present understanding in reorganizing sexual identities and the conditions of being. Papers that examine the intersection of sexuality, identity, language and power are welcome. Abstract and 50-word bio by May 30.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, July 31, 2018

The Villanova Center for Liberal Education (VCLE) at Villanova University is sponsoring a one-day conference on W. E. B. DuBois and Liberal Education. We have chosen to celebrate the work of W. E. B. DuBois because he is the exemplary interdisciplinary, engaged scholar, not merely a practitioner of the liberal arts but also an ardent defender of them. His writings encompassed and bridged philosophy, sociology, literature, political science, history, music, economics, Africana Studies, and cultural studies. He was also a journalist, editor, organizer, and political activist. 2018 is the 150th anniversary of his birth.
